Washington, February 19.--The
55thi Congress is on the homo-stretch
and the indicutions aro that t ho busi
nISS of the GoverImIenHt Will bo
rounded up by the 4th of March, so
as to r-nder unnecessa)ry th calling
of an extra session. The appropri
ation bills are well under way, and
during tho remaining days of the
session the '.wo houses of Congress
Will sit day and night, if nucossary,
to comilpleto the passage of tho mo
ney hills. The danger point was
pas,;ed when the peace treaty wias
ratified. It was thought that the
failure o! the army reorganization
bill ilight induce the President to
call an extra session. I an informed
by leading members of the Adminis
tration in the Senato and IIouse that
at compromise oil tho army bill will
ho-offered, so that the present mili
lary organization of the Government
-will be contitmed for anothmr yor,
or. perhaps, the Hull. bill may be
modified so as to provide for a term
porary increase of the army. It is
cltimed that the objectionablo foat
uro of a permatnent standing army
will thus be overcomo by a compro
miHnon tie lines mentioned. It is
said that, soveral o the leading Dem
ocrats who have been most activo in
their opposit ion to the army bill are
dispos,-d to accept the proposition
looking to the temporary increase of
the army S.13nator Lodge summed
'up the situation when he said to me
"The President will ho able to got
ulong for another year with the pres
'knit military organization, and thus
avoid the nveessity for an extra ses.
sion of Congress."
TH- NICARAOUA CANAL.
some vf the aivocates of an extra
session are looking for a deadlock
between the lionso and Fonato over

To the Elditor of The State:
It im at pity Iha11t thev duenoinlialitioli

into I ho quention of giving adequate
support to tho South Carolina col
lege, and that tho (Iliestion cannot
bo decided on its merits. As usual

for the friends of tho Stiato coleges
to let thei remnin in this attitu<l
I write not for the purposo of mak
ing an argument. but to filo excep.
tions, est it should ho inferred from
the silence Jf thO church schools that
they assent, to the various proposi
tions oil which the champions of the
Stato colleges rest their claims. For
instanlce, in the legislativo dtebalte a
gentleman argued in the course of
what you chiaracterize as a "logical"
spveech, thliat the denoiniiation sn
ports its collego in ordler to send out
graduates who vill maint ain its unit.y,
anld that the State must, in like nan
ner, support a college thilt. will send
out gradiales who will prove loyal
to the State and aid in promoting its
solidlrity. The argument is bisvd
on the assumption Ilat the graduates
of dvnmin inational colleges iri less
pitriotic t.han those of th e State cot
lvgOs. We need educated n1mi who
will be tirue to the State; the gradu
litus of denominational colleges are
not such men ; therefore Wo do not
n1eed such graduatev.s. Or, we nevd
eduicatd I.en who will Ie loyal to
the State; therefore wo do not, 11ed
educa':ed men who aro Joyal to the
churcb. This is the gentleman's loi,
adl(] I am niot now calling it. inl qulies
tion. 1 have simply to say that, if
it is valid reasoning, t hen t lie denoi
inations ought to be wied out;
church and Stato should bo united;
and tho Stato should have oxelusivo
control of higher education, so as to
be able to send out educated men
who will be true to its history andl(]
its principles. iven the argument
that was made whe the Souti Caro
liia college was founded, that the
unity and harmony of the whole com
munity would be promoted by bring
